Gossamer Blue Inspiration Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to the very first Gossamer Blue Inspiration Blog Hop! I am so honoured to be part of this awesome team, we are coming together today to share our projects created with the amazing October kits.

Melanie Blackburn  *You are here*

The October kits provides an endless array of inspiration, from the main scrapbook kit to the LP add ons, I can guarantee that these kits will give you amazing amounts of inspiration. 

Main Kit


I've created a fun layout especially for this blog hop, I used the stamps from the main LP kit to embellish my white cardstock along with a mix of gelatos. All the supplies on this layout are from the main kit and add ons, even the lovely wood veneers, those are exclusive to Gossamer Blue!!!




Now it's time to keep the blog hop going, next stop is Michelle Wooderson, I just love her wonderful work, I know you will as well!!! You can always go back to the Gossamer Blue blog for a full list of the participants. 

Thanks for playing along!!!!

Magic with Fancy Pants

Well, I think it's pretty evident that Christmas is just around the corner and will be here before we know it. I was drooling over the Fancy Pants Oh Deer collection and knew I had to put everything aside to create a fun layout. I just love how Fancy Pants always offers coordinating tags with their collections, I love using tags, so it was a no brainer to incorporate one on this layout, in fact I love it so much that I decided to make it the focus of my layout. This layout is created for Fancy Pants as member of the Social Media team.

October Layouts - Gossamer Blue

Oh my word! How I loved working with the October kits, yes I say this every month and yes they blow my mind every month! Seriously love the mix of fallish colours along with bold blacks and golds papers. It was such an pleasure designing these layouts. I created them during a SCT Crop and Create event and it was fun not having to pack a lot of supplies, just my kits and that kept me going all weekend.

Full - Fancy Pants Designs

I've been hanging on to this picture for over a year, I love how this showcase our family. My heart is full (hence the title of this page) when I look at this picture. I am happy, content and feeling so very blessed. The 4x6 and 3x4 cards were my starting point for this layout, since they were both very bold I wanted to keep the rest of the layout very simple and clean. I love the versatility of the Fancy Pants collections, I used the Me-ology collection to create this layout.

Dollar Bin - October Afternoon

Hello friends! I've just returned from an amazing event in Cornwall, Crop and Create, which is organized by Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine. I met some amazing online friends and spent 2 wonderful days laughing, chatting and yes, scrapping. LOL! 

I'm back today to share a layout for October Afternoon. I used the Public Library collection to document Danika's love of the dollar bin books we found at Target. Hope you will check out the blog for the full details on my challenge.
